We support people with Spinal Cord Injury to help them live full, independent lives

Story

I'm taking on the Aspire Channel Swim 2019, swimming the distance of the English Channel over 12 weeks to raise money for Aspire. Every four hours someone is paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury and Aspire provides the essential equipment, advice and housing that spinal cord injured people need to live their lives independently.

It may not sound like much of a challenge as it isn't the actual Channel and it's over 12 weeks (September 9th to December 2nd) - but I want to see how much I can actually do during that time. I also have two holidays, one work trip and three weekends away booked for this time period - so it is more like 8 weeks. Not to mention that I love my lashes and won't be able to swim for a few days after each infill:).

...and we all know how much I hate getting my hair wet - so you will have to put up with me being a lion with wild hair a lot more often.
